American servicemen and -women are currently stationed in more than 140 countries, often living and working on military bases that not only dominate foreign territories but also re-create familiar space that "feels like home"-gated communities filled with rambling subdivisions, franchised restaurants, and lush golf courses. Through case studies of several U.S. military facilities Gillem exposes military installations as exports of the American Dream. With passion and eloquence he questions the impact of this practice on the rest of the world, exposing the arrogance of U.S. consumption of foreign land.
